Who are we?

Our church has a long history. First formed in 1813, meeting near the old London Bridge, and grew rapidly, to the point of having to run three services on a Sunday to fit everyone in.

The church moved to Snows Fields, then to Webb Street before constructing a purpose built chapel on Lynton Road, Bermondsey in 1873. This chapel was sadly lost to bomb damage in 1940, and many families left Bermondsey, and indeed London, for safer parts of the country.

1946 saw the building of our current chapel on Monnow Road, and the faithful witness continued through good times and bad.

With people of all ages and nationalities, we are drawn together by a desire to see God's Word impact our lives, and our community.

We would love to hear from you:

You can find us in Bermondsey, behind the Queen Victoria pub. We are ten minutes walk from Bermondsey tube station, and three minutes walk from the no. 1, or no. 381 bus routes. Parking is available in 'The Blue Market carpark', behind the nearby Poundland on Southwark Park Road.

Missions

Missions

Our current missions focus is with Albania. We are connected to the Albanian Evangelical Mission and are directly supporting James and Lori Clarke, and others in Gjirocaster, southern Albania.

Traditionally home to a majority Muslim population living alongside people of Catholic and Orthodox faith, Albania gained notoriety under Communism as the world’s first officially atheist state. The Communist regime established under Enver Hoxha collapsed in 1991 opening the door to the gospel of Jesus Christ. What happened next can be seen as an ‘awakening’ in which many Albanian people, and young people especially, came to believe in the Biblical Jesus.

After more than 25 years of energetic mission activity, a strong and growing evangelical church testifies to the living Saviour as the nation struggles to free itself from poverty, corruption and hopelessness.
